Atmosphere in The Attic

 If you are looking for a shopping experience with a difference you will love this little shop…

The Attic is nestled away in the collection of Vauxhall shops in an old double brick building, which was originally a bakery. Many people still remember the bakery although it has been gone for more than 30 years. The area is well served now for baked treats by Chateaubriant, the French delicatessen and cafe a couple of doors along, and Vauxhall Cafe and Cheltenham Milk Bar across the road.

The Attic is a delightful little store that sells gifts and homewares with a difference. Here you will find a wide array of beautiful things from trinkets to furniture, all with a distinctive style. Specialising in goods with a traditional timeless elegance, the Attic has a French flavour but also sells items such as Vespa mugs from Italy, kelims and carpets from Iran and English tin posters with vintage cars. You will also find new leather chairs in vintage styles which give any home a wonderful feeling of luxury and tradition. There is a variety of styles available from wing chairs to club chairs, dining chairs and sofas. 

There is also a wide variety of other items for the home and a beautiful selection of gifts with a difference. With free gift wrapping and a wonderful selection of cards, this is a one stop shop for those looking for gifts. 

Since 2003 the Attic has supplied Devonport residents with Marseille liquid soaps, Durance home fragrances and candles, classic glasses made by La Rochere in France since 1475 and genuine Laguiole cutlery. This shop is a little gem and has a loyal following of customers who come from near and far. Once you have experienced the relaxing atmosphere where you are always welcome to browse , you will want to return again and again. This is not your run of the mill shop and the hours are a little different too. Opening hours are fromTuesday to Friday from 11 to 4 and Saturday 11 to 3. Closed Sunday and Monday, but able to open outside these hours by appointment if you phone 021 0235 6075.
